Once a placement is offered, a non-refundable deposit of $700 must be paid using the Illinois E-Pay system which can be found here:
Families paying monthly will still use Smart Tuition once they have paid their deposit via the ePay site. In order to use the E-Pay system current parents will need your child’s CPS ID. If you are new to CPS or cannot locate your child’s CPS ID, please contact Ms. Chandler at ejchandler @cps.edy for help.
This deposit is non-refundable. At the time of a placement offer, the deposit amount will be credited to the annual tuition balance.
